Hancock’s Whitney Agreement Has $50 Million Fee If Deal Falters

Dec. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Hancock Holding Co., which agreed yesterday to buy Whitney Holding Corp. for about $1.5 billion to expand banking operations in the U.S. South, may be entitled to a $50 million termination fee if the target backs out.

Hancock may have to pay the same amount if it withdraws from the agreement, the Gulfport, Mississippi-based lender said in a regulatory filing today.
